Cocktails / July 24, 2014 /
We like to talk about fun, light-hearted “holidays” a lot and how to celebrate them, but today is different. Today is a hardcore, real life, major holiday: it’s National Tequila Day. Tequila is one of the most important types of booze you’ll find in a person’s liquor cabinet and there is no doubt that it deserves its own special day on the calendar. read more
Recipes and bars, or trends in drinking, if it's interesting, entertaining or too weird to ignore, our two cents about it is here.
You may know your grandma as that sweet old lady who likes to give you hard candy when you visit her house, but she probably used to be a pretty cool broad. Heck, she probably is still a cool broad, but she just puts an act on while you’re around because she wants to set a good example. Grandmas are good like that.
We’ve never been a big fan of going to camp, but when we heard about Sierra Nevada’s Beer Camp Across America, we knew it was something we needed to be a part of. We also learned that it actually has nothing to do with camping, which is so clutch.
If you’re a bourbon fan, then this is a message for you. Jim Beam is planning on releasing their first ever hand-crafted, Kentucky straight single-barrel bourbon, and they want your help.
Here at Drinking in America, we always enjoy a good slang word or two. In our world, words like “brew,” “cold one,” and “booze” create that warm fuzzy feeling you get in your stomach when you see your old teddy bear. These are the words that keep us going. read more
Bacardi is learning that you don’t want to mess with the New England Patriots – on or off the field. The Boston Globe is reporting that the rum giant backed out of a 10-year, multimillion dollar exclusive sponsorship agreement with the football team and the Patriots are fighting back by suing Bacardi for breach of contract. read more
Cocktails are always a good time. We love nothing more than a quality drink, some fine people, and a night out on the town. But there’s one minor detail that can spice up any drinking occasion—an edible beverage glass. You’ve probably dabbled with an ice shot or even a tropical coconut cocktail on vacation, but that’s not nearly the extent of these unique creations. When you need to quench your thirst, step up your alcohol game with one or all of these appetizing vessels. read more
In the world of food and drink, there are truly only a few things that can make us question our loyalty to alcohol: ice cream is one of those things. Ice cream is probably the most important thing ever invented in the world (who needs electricity or the wheel?), which is why we are thrilled to let you know that today is National Ice Cream Day!
You may wonder why someone would leave Miami to go live in Cleveland (again), but LeBron James is actually about to jump back in to a pretty solid drinking scene that they’ve got out there in the Cleve. If you’re planning to make a pilgrimage to Cleveland this coming basketball season to watch King James play, make sure you check out some of the more popular places to kick back and have a drink. read more
Summer is the season of sun, vacation, barbecues, and weddings. Chances are that you’ve been to at least one wedding this summer and that there are still more to come. If you’re anything like us, you’re looking forward to the reception; you’ll get to chat with family and friends, have a great meal, and (most importantly) make a stop by the bar. But, that’s where the all-important issue comes into play: open bar or cash bar. As a guest, you’re hoping you won’t have to pull out the old wallet. But as a host, you might feel otherwise. read more
